About 250 employees at CSC to lose jobs

CORBIN — By Becky Killian, Editor

About 250 employees at a Williamsburg business are losing their jobs after a contract wasn’t renewed.

CSC, located at 965 South Hwy. 25W, was contracted to process citizenship paperwork, according to Williamsburg Mayor Roddy Harrison.

A statement released by CSC spokeswoman Michelle Sicola Herd said, “CSC confirms that  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has ended its Record Digitization Services contract as of Oct. 31, 2012, resulting in the loss of jobs at CSC’s Williamsburg, Kentucky center. All impacted employees will be supported professionally, compassionately and with assistance in their transition within CSC or from CSC.”

Herd said about 250 people are employed at the Williamsburg location and that all those jobs are affected by the contract loss.

“I’m upset about it. That’s a lot of people,” Harrison said.

Harrison said he is already seeking another business to replace the lost jobs.

“I’m working right now making phone calls,” Harrison said, adding he has been in contact with representatives from Congressman Hal Rogers’ office as well as state Rep. Regina Bunch.

“I know we can’t do anything about this particular contract, but we need to turn around and get that facility back up and used for something,” Harrison said.

“It’s going to hurt our community and the economy but I’m not giving up, either,” Harrison said.
